On Thursday, Amy Schumer cleared up rumors she previously ignited over Twitter that her hit Comedy Central sketch series, “Inside Amy Schumer,” had been canceled.

#InsideAmySchumer is not cancelled,” she wrote on Twitter. “@ComedyCentral has provided us with a wonderful home and we couldn’t be happier there. I am just touring.”

The “Trainwreck” star elaborated to say that the show’s fifth season, already ordered, will debut later than expected because she plans to do more stand-up and to focus on writing over the next year.

Schumer sent her fans into a tailspin Wednesday night when she wrote that she “isn’t making the show anymore,” following the public outcry over writer Kurt Metzger’s victim-blaming rant about rape. On IMDb, Metzger claims writing credits for 39 episodes of “Inside Amy Schumer.”

“Inside Amy Schumer” was renewed for a fifth season in January after earning multiple Emmy awards and one Peabody award for previous seasons.

“We are so excited to get picked up,” Schumer in a statement at the time. “I’ve gotten picked up many times, but this time feels the best.”
